Chain Hill

On land which is half in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) developers have managed to squeeze 85 dwellings into the lower (Northern) portion of the site.

For a summary of the final approved application and the section 106 agreement see the Council website (P13/V2454/RM and P12/V2316/O).

This development was given consent before the Vale had an approved Local Plan and so it would have been very difficult to turn it down. It is on the very southern edge of the town on a steep slope and the AONB boundary runs through the site. For this reason all of the housing is to the north and the green space on the development is in AONB.

The Design and Access statement makes the site look very attractive:

- will the green space be made to match the approved landscape plan shown here (P14/V0965/DIS)?
